Summary: There are numerous earthquakes and tsunamis that occurred in Eastern Mediterranean and are documented in historical records. Hellenic Arc is one of the important tsunami source regions in Eastern Mediterranean. In order to assess and visualize the tsunami propagation in the Eastern Mediterranean from the sources along Hellenic Arc, a new tsunami simulation/visualization software NAMI DANCE is used. In this study, five different tsunami cases related to selected rupture characteristics are used in modeling application. The results and comparisons are presented with discussions.
